Disney to buy 20th (21st) Century Fox?
Time

Jp4195 said:

While I personally don’t really like the idea of Disney buying everything, I don’t think they’ve done anything wrong with their acquisitions yet (LucasFilm and Marvel Studios feel way separated from the main company in my opinion and I think that’s intentional in their part) they don’t dare put the Disney logo on any SW or Marvel movie and seem to be doing a decent job maintaining all these properties that they have the rights to, basically they’re just treating these studios that they’ve merged into their own as separate entities in their own right while still under one main studio, it reminds me of touchstone pictures in a way which is/was (are they still around) owned by Disney but treated as its own studio or production company that being said I think we’ll be ok

First off, I agree 100%, just because Fox will be owned by Disney doesn’t mean it will be CONTROLLED by Disney. They’ll still let Fox do their own thing and not interfere, less they do a project together.

Second, Touchstone is still around. Their next co-production Glass is set for release in 2019. And again, if they released their Marvel and SW titles under that banner, it could probably help generate business even interest again for Touchstone.

You know I was thinking of that! 😄

That’d be cool wouldn’t it, if thanks to the Disney-Fox merger they announce Fox will co-distribute TLJ at the last minute? Plus, the possibility of Fox co-distributing any other future SW media (maybe even help co-produce one).

If you’ve been reading up as of late, though Bob Iger stends to stay longer as Disney CEO, James Murdoch is looking to be next in line (oh, so awkward!):

But Rupert prefers that Iger stays:

That’s not all, the deal is expected to be done by Thursday:

Finally, a latest article:

Again, I so want this deal to go through because to have Star Wars in a way fully owned by Fox again, that’s all I really wanted. They were always SW’s rightful home to me.

Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas (Complete) - NOW AVAILABLE!
Time

The 40th anniversary edition of Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas is now available and I found 2 Amazon reviews confirming that the Kermit scenes (and the laundry scene) have been restored:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R25QRZ02WJ7U3A/ref=cm_cr_getr_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B0746S1XZ1

https://www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/R3LUIR1VP9HQUJ/ref=cm_cr_getr_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B0746S1XZ1

No word yet if the presentation is original full screen with the proper 60fps framerate or the matted widescreen presentation with the manipulated film-like framerate (the one that aired on ABC Family/Freeform) but I asked one of the reviewers and currently awaiting reply.

UPDATE: So bad news; the 40th AE DVD is in matted-widescreen with the film-like framerate.

Gumby: The Movie (1995) - Original Theatrical Version Reconstruction
Time

Bumping this thread to tell you all that NCircle will be releasing the film on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack:
https://www.amazon.com/Gumby-Movie-BD-Combo/dp/B01M9BFWNM

According to the runtime, it seems it will be the theatrical version.

Further confirmation comes from a listing on Amazon Instant (with NCircle listed at the Studio) with a runtime of 88:36 (it still missing the Warner Vision logo though).

Beavis and Butt-head: Not the Mike Judge Collection (need bonus discs!)
Time

Excuse me for bumping an old thread, but I have a question; does V2 of the King Turd Collection feature the transfers from the Mike Judge Collection Volume 3 or are they VHS rips?

Also something to point out, Nose Bleed on the Mike Judge Collection Volume 3 extends a few scenes by a couple of seconds, but it removes 2 seconds of Butt-Head laughing after coming up with an idea to fix Beavis’ bloody nose once and for all (though it can be found on the Innocence Lost/Chicks N’ Stuff DVD from Time-Life). What does the King Turd Collection have for that episode (meaning adding the 2 seconds back in)?

Star Wars moving forward without Ms. Fisher

So there’s 4 possibilities: CGI, recast, have her off screen in IX, or recycle unused takes.

I think using the idea of using deleted scenes and unused takes is a wise choice. As for killing her off, I don’t know (I’m leaning towards No).

At any rate, the main saga is ending at IX.

Do you have any hopes/ideas for X-XII?
Time

I don’t know. I would just end the main series at IX, as George wanted. On the other hand, he envisioned 9-12 films, so if they want to go up to XII, let that be it.

If you want to make more Star Wars films, the spin-off films were made for a reason.

It's the full collection, Charlie Brown! AKA continuing the Warner Peanuts 1960s, 1970s "decade" collections
Time

marioxb said:

So the DVDs “He’s a Bully, Charlie Brown” and “Peanuts: The Emmy Honored Collection” (AKA almost the 1980s Collection) have HD to SD remasters of most/all of the specials on them.

Didn’t realize that. I just assumed for He’s a Bully, Charlie Brown, they used the previous (remastered) transfers. Can you please do an image comparison for the specials on that discs with the other Warner releases that have them?
